      Disadvantages

      Small and practical, but not reliable enough for a full-time primary computer.

      Owning the pink version of this laptop for 18 months now, I have found this product accessible and easy to use, but not very durable or reliable. I have experienced problems with freezing, where I had to keep removing the battery in order to be able to restart the system. Eventually one of the locks broke, so my battery is now in place with rather fetching black tape. The colouring on the mouse has also faded but I've found the exterior to be fool-hardy. Except for the aforementioned black tape, it looks immaculate and has not stratched at all.

      System-wise, it has slowed with age more than expected but still works well with most programs. It has three USB points which have been useful and the screen and imagery has remained fluid and bright. The wireless I found to be a bit patchy and not very receptive to a wireless broadband connection with the hub in another room.

      I bought this because of it's handiness due to it's size and still feel it is good value as a secondary computer - although recommend having a more longlasting alternative computer, like a PC for stationary use.

      by another better quality laptop i suggest sony

      This laptop, in all honesty performs poorly. it was great for the first few months - really quick (which is the first thing i look for in a laptop) and very easy to use. I have the Vista system which is great too. But after a while the speed deteriorates very quickly to the point where the some of the programs are "i want to hit the screen" frustrating. im sure this isnt just my impatience as it has frozen twice already as i write this review! the running of programs on this is truly ridiculous. i have little music, no movies, great antivirus software and it cant properly install an Ea Sports game, when i got the done finally there was copias amounts of screen jutters during the game play and some times it literally stopped working and closed the program. i assure you its the computer and not the game asn my friends now runs the game on his applemac and loves it!
